Hi everyone, Claire here! I’m so excited to finally share our tour of the Sweet Laurel Cottage! After many months of hard work, it has finally come together and Laurel and I couldn’t be happier with the results. Let’s start this tour with one of our favorites rooms – the master bedroom. The concept for this room was a well lit boudoir. We wanted to feel the natural world coming in, but still get that feeling of an escape. The color of the room is crisp and clean and white with soft and sexy pink accents throughout.
Laurel absolutely loves the color pink. We wanted the master bedroom to feel feminine and grown up, but not feel like a little girl’s room, so when we started working on this room we chose this really soft, petal pink as the core color. The space is so tranquil and relaxing and there’s so much natural light. We fell in LOVE with this blush pink velvet bed from Joybird. I love the art deco feel and how dramatic it is. The scalloped edges give it a sense of glamour which I love. This was also the first time Laurel has had a king bed in her house and I was so excited to give her this luxurious experience in her bedroom.
I love doing a wall of drapes in a space. It’s a great way to bring texture and color into a room. We found this amazing blush velvet fabric from Room and Board that we decided to turn into floor to ceiling drapes for a big statement.
Laurel is obsessed with the Viola Sconces from Troy Lighting. We have them in the Sweet Laurel Bakery as well and when we started to look at light fixtures, Laurel told me she wanted them in every room in the house. We decided to mount them as bedside lamps for a touch of old world glamour. We tried to mix in little elements of antiques when we could to give the space an eclectic boudoir feeling.
On the opposite wall, we put this glamorous Joybird reading chair right next to the french doors that lead out to the garden. Right outside is this incredible rose arch so when the doors are open, you can smell amazing roses and lavender. We wanted to bring the outside inside, so the color of the bedroom was inspired by the color of the heirloom roses Laurel has growing on the archway. We wanted the old world English cottage feeling, without it coming off fussy like your grandma’s doilies.
For the floors, we chose Duchateau Herringbone which we have throughout the house for an elevated, elegant and European feel.
